In brief: 100 mg twice daily

Doxycycline is usually given in doses of 100 mg orally or IV twice daily for just about all conditions.
Cholera is an exception. The type of condition that is being treated dictates the duration of therapy.

In brief: Doxycycline

The recommended dosage for most illnesses likely to be benefited by its use is 100mg once or twice a day.
You can get 200mg dosages but not sure if there is any added efficacy to taking more than that. Why are you asking this question?
